If you are considering UK Barge Holidays then you will find that you are spoilt for choice when it comes to the possible routes you can take and the type of boat you can hire. The country is filled with canals and rivers which are perfect for boat holidays.
It may not seem to be the obvious choice for UK Barge Holidays, but it is a good way to tour some of the country’s cities. Birmingham is reputed to have more canals than Venice and the recent regeneration of the city centre means that there is plenty to see and do there. Why not take a tour around the city’s world-famous jewellery quarter? There is also the new Bullring shopping centre which is filled with every type of shop that you could want.
London also has its fair share of canals and those on UK Barge Holidays can sail through areas such as Camden and stop to do a little shopping in the market there. London’s underground system also means that you can moor the boat for a few hours and explore the city quickly. A night out in the West End or a few hours at one of the capital’s tourist attractions such as the Tower of London and the London Eye can make you feel like a proper tourist.
Manchester is another popular city destination for those taking boating holidays and on the UK Barge Holidays you can stop off and enjoy this great city. Those who spend some time sailing on the Cheshire Ring network of canals can sail into the heart of Manchester and stop and explore. The city has several top theatres and restaurants which can help to make a good evening out and the recent regeneration of the Salford Quays area has led to the development of the Lowry complex, with an outlet shopping village, art gallery and theatre.
These are just some of the options that are available for you to enjoy when you choose to spend your time on the Canal Holidays. The UK Barge Holidays are one of the best ways to see the hidden areas of the UK and you will love the freedom and the fun of the boating breaks.
